Our good friend Praveen is back at with his smooth Braille alias after a short hiatus going full Sepalcure. The EP is a solid listen all the way through, taking apart his organic sound structures and delivering selections for the dancefloor and even some for those lonely nights.

On February 10, Praveen Sharma aka Braille (one half of Sepalcure) will arrive on Friends of Friends with the Everyone’s Crazy EP. Utilizing an organic sound palette and a vast repertoire of on the cusp production techniques, Braille’s first release on FoF positions the Brooklyn-resident at the fore of sultry, beat-based music that doesn’t shy away from letting the listener into the interior world of Sharma himself. Everyone’s Crazy will function as the precedent to Braille’s forthcoming full-length debut, Mute Swan, coming Spring 2015!

Another round of Bandcamping In The Wild, this collection has a post-modern angle on the creative end. Mostly chop ups, edits, and fusions, all gorgeously executed.

Looking for old and new music always becomes leads you down different paths, one of my favorite ways is just seeing how deep in Bandcamp I can get without hitting a dead end.

Floating Points + LoveLock

Posting 2 growers from the synth world, I love intro of the Floating Points track because the white noise hiss hits like ocean waves in your ears while the song build beautifully with Sam Shepherd sprinkles the cut with his keys.

Furthering this dense journey this focused onslaught of mature synth work by Lovelock carries on into the patience of prepping yourself for relaxation and analog craftsmanship.
